Former Trump aide Stephanie Grisham planning book: report MORE reportedly won’t be plunking down money for a blender or toaster as a wedding gift for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle — instead opting to make a charitable donation in honor of the royal nuptials on Saturday.
The Trumps “will be making a contribution to one of the seven charities the royal couple has designated in lieu of gifts,” White House deputy press secretary Lindsay Walters told The Daily Mail on Wednesday.
Kensington Palace announced last month that the couple — who is poised to tie the knot at Windsor Castle in England — is asking “that anyone who might wish to mark the occasion considers making a donation to charity, rather than sending a wedding gift.”
The seven organizations selected by California-born actress Markle and Harry, the sixth in line to the British throne, include charities focused on homelessness, children living with HIV, women’s empowerment, the children of fallen military veterans, marine conservation and wilderness preservation.
Trump and the first lady are not expected to be amongst the guests at the royal wedding.
"It has been decided that an official list of political leaders — both UK and international — is not required for Prince Harry and Ms. Markle's wedding," a Kensington Palace spokesman told ITK in April.
